SensationAll Kids Gym Vision Statement
Children and families of All abilities now have an inclusive place to explore and play in Contra Costa County. SensationAll Kids Gym is an indoor, climate controlled, sensory environment offering various types of play and therapy-like equipment to families and children of all ages and abilities. SensationAll Kids Gym empowers families with the opportunity and specialized equipment needed to provide their children with ongoing therapy while having fun and reducing medical costs.
The owners and origin of SensationAll Kids Gym
Sian DeLuca, OTR/L and Patricia Medina, OTR/L, founders of SensationAll Kids Gym, are close friends who also happen to be licensed California Occupational Therapists. Patty works closely with children in both school and hospital settings and Sian specializes in school-based treatment settings. Together, they bring 20 years of clinical and professional pediatric experience.
The two envisioned SensationAll Kids after many conversations about the need for an inclusive safe space for kids with special needs and their families to come together to play, exercise, and participate in sensory based activities — a place outside of their homes or clinic environment at an affordable cost compared to the hourly rate of a therapist. A short time later, SensationAll Kids Gym was born.
Nick Cartagena, an engineer and project manager by trade, is also a close friend and part owner. You may not see him much at our play facility, but he’s diligently working behind the scenes to make this a fun, safe, and affordable facility for all.
